Portrait of David Robinson

David Robinson

David Robinson D.Min., lives in Cannon Beach, Oregon, with his wife. They enjoy three grown sons and two daughters-in-love. David has served as pastor of Community Presbyterian Church, Cannon Beach since 1993 and became a Benedictine Oblate of Mount Angel Abbey, Oregon in 2006.

Over the past seven years, David and his family have hiked over 250 miles of trails in Olympic National Park together. On these annual week-long family backpacking vacations, the Robinsons share family life together, including prayers, devotions, meals, game nights, read-aloud time, chores, study of nature, and hospitality. David views the spiritual adventure of raising children as a journey parents take with their children through decades along the paths into the family cloister. He believes that what parents need most today is clear guidance for spiritual parenting and encouragement from those who have walked this trail before.

David found that Benedict offers practical wisdom in his little guidebook for beginners, The Rule of St. Benedict, written fifteen hundred years ago. In The Busy Family’s Guide to Spiritual Parenting, David explores Benedict’s guidebook for parents, offering insights and guidance along the journey of spiritual parenting in the 21st century.
